What a Day!!

Here it is the  Wednesday after the Wedding and I am still tired. Honestly it was the most perfect day. The start was a little worrisome with the grey sky's and the rain. We were prepared with the tent and the sides but this tent would not fit the 140 + people attending. That is a lot of extra umbrellas. By Noon time the sun was shining and the the air was crisp with no humidity.

The ceremony was at Adams house on Orrs Island with an Easterly water view. Adam and Tara made a beautiful archway made out of birch with baby's breath and ferns hanging. The kids started off the ceremony with a parade of clanging Wedding Bells. At this point I am sure you are saying "Where are the photos?" Truth be told none of us had time to take a picture. Sue's eyes were so teary I don't think she could have seen through the lens. Everything was outstanding, the exchange of vows between Adam, Tamara and Francis was heartwarming.

I quickly left the ceremony to set up my signature cocktail drink- Blueberry Vodka with Lemonade and frozen blueberries which was quite tasty and a hit! The food was plentiful and the lobster rolls and scallops wrapped in bacon were flying off the tables. The grounds were beautiful as many people spent countless hours on the gardens ( as you know Sue was only to happy to plant shop). The cake was gorgeous and Sue's niece Dawn even made cupcakes for the kids. Speaking of kids boy was there a lot of kids running around this place. Good thing we locked the pool.

The night ended with gas Chinese Lanterns floating into the air, which were way cool! It was a lot of
work but I think all in all it went off without a hitch. I am holding Sue to the fact that we are not having another Wedding here. Unless of course it is Danny or Josh.

All the Best, Alicia
